Workshop Progress Report January / February 2022

Following delivery of Rhaetia’s boiler to England on the 13th December 2021, the team at the  North Norfolk Railway (NNR)[ in Weybourne  have been busy. The crown stays have been severed, all the other stays carefully bored out avoiding damage to the outer wrapper including the palm stays. With the foundation ring free the inner firebox was ready for lifting out on the 10th February.

The Inner firebox will be replaced.

The following photos are from the on-site engineer of  Swiss Railway Services (SRS). Note the boiler is upside down
